Defending Against a No Contact Order

If you have been served with a temporary order, call Michele immediately. Michele can help you understand the process and how to respond appropriately. She is very experienced in litigating these proceedings. She has also frequently been able to resolve these matters without litigation.

When these matters proceed to a full hearing, the burden of proof for the plaintiff is far less than that in a criminal case. The plaintiff simply needs to prove their claim by a preponderance of the evidence. It is critical to strategize your defense before embarking on a path that could be problematic for you in your future.

Seeking a No Contact Order

If you believe you need the protection of a court order, Michele can help. Together, we’ll need to make a presentation to the court that will help them understand why the order is warranted. Judges hear many of these cases every day and must balance your needs against the rights of the person who is the subject of the order.
